    Why are today's kids so disrespectful?

    I feel like today's kids are getting more and more disrespectful.  They are rude to their parents, their peers and most important of all, they are rude to elderly people.

    The television shows glamorize rebellion and sarcasm, for one. The government has stripped the educational system of consequence for poor behavior (no failing grades allowed, no zeroes even if caught cheating [at least that happened to my sister when she taught in FL]). Plus, oftentimes, parents are so busy with work schedules they don't have a lot of family time not centered around tv -- bc a lot of times parents simply want to kick back and relax when they finally get home.

    I've also seen parents who seemed afraid to discipline their children.

    Parents have forgotten how to be a parent! Instead of punishing them or giving them direction, way too many parents want to be their children's "Friend!"

    When that happens is because social values are not being taken into account in the family nucleus.

    The whole society is interlinked in many ways. The character, personality, and identity of a person are shaped through many different means. An individual can influence a society and vice versa. They all seem complex, right? Yes, it is indeed a... read more

    I have to say I think you're being a little harsh! Okay there are a lot of absolute brats out there I'll concede but as a general rule I think the majority of kids I meet are well-reared and respectful. And I can tell you an absolute fact, if you see a disrespectful or rude child, the furthest you need to look is to their parents. Children need to be brought up, not dragged up.

    Well, I think that children are often the mirrors of society - if they see nothing good worth following, they follow what is bad.

    I know for sure that lots of the elderly people are first and foremost rude themselves - but when they see the exact same behaviour they are showing on us, it suddenly becomes an outrage, lack of manners on our side. Parents now often do not have the time or can't be bothered to spend the time with their cchildren. And then they wonder what the heck had grown up from their children.

    Noone seems to be bothered by the fact that sometimes, it's not entirely the child's fault they have no manners, as they had no person to learn from.

    Because the 'nannies', have frightened everyone from disciplining the poor little darlings for their cheek and bad behaviour.

    For kids in the west - Its partly because kids know they can call the police on their parents for one little slap. Hence, parents are afraid to discipline their kids for fear of having them put in care. Also, as a teacher - there is not much power we have in Schools to discipline them. (we are sort of their part-time parents.)

    Look at the whole picture and you get kids that are not just disrespectul to parents. They have no respect for even Policemen. They will insult them. You can't find these issues in Asia or other places.

    Having said that, there are still some beautiful, kids out there who are respectful. I've seen both sides.

    I concur with breathe2travel. Kids are being taught early on that the "nice guy finishes last" and "you fight until you win".

    Parent often let their children talk back to them; parents are afraid to discipline them especially in public.

    If respect is not taught and demanded at home and children don't learn to respect their parents, then how will they ever respect anyone else.....teachers, coaches, bosses, police officers, future spouses?
